Installation on Rocks 5.4
I'm trying to install OpenFOAM 1.7.1 on a Rocks 5.4 Cluster. Im installing from source in the /opt directory. Im getting several errors. The first errors are related to MPI. Attached is the log file.
Thanks in advance!
OK, two things:
In special, you should have noticed the sections:
I don't have experience with know Rocks, so I don't know if it provides more recent gcc versions or not, nor do I know which MPI toolbox it provides. Same goes for the libraries Metis and Scotch.
In case Rocks doesn't provide a more recent gcc, then try the latest build scripts in this blog page: Automated scripts for building gcc 4.4.x and 4.5.x for using with OpenFOAM 1.7 series
Oh, before I forget, either one of those builds scripts assume that you have the ThirdParty folder...
Thanks for your reply Bruno. The gcc package Rocks has by default is 4.1.2. The newer version for gcc is in a package called gcc44. This is installed and the version is 4.4.0. I did not have the Third-Party directory. I unpacked this directory as well and ran .Allwmake again. That didnt work. I tried changing the $WM_DIR/rules/linux64Gcc/c++ as you suggested for Fedora installation in another post which had helped me before. That didnt work either. The log file couldnt fit in one file so here it is split up.
I ended up investigating a bit more about Rocks and found out that it's based on CentOS, who in turn is based on RedHat Enterprise Linux. And the thread that has the solution you need is related to the latter one: OpenFOAM install on RHEL 5.5 :D
edit: You should check which MPI library/toolbox your Rocks installation is using! If it uses OpenMPI by default, you can simply change from OPENMPI to SYSTEMOPENMPI in the file "OpenFOAM-1.7.1/etc/bashrc". If it uses something else, check that relevant area in that "OpenFOAM-1.7.1/etc/bashrc" file, as well in the relevant MPI area in "OpenFOAM-1.7.1/etc/settings.sh".
edit 2 (trying to save forum space ;)): I forgot to mention that since you'll be compiling with a very different gcc version, you better do a clean up before rebuilding again with the new compiler. For that, run:
I have been working successfully (including paraFoam) on rocks 4.3 HPC cluster with openfoam 1.4.1, 1.5, 1.6.x versions. Aslo, recently moved on to centos 5.4/5.5 amd64 arch.
it's a bit more complicated to setup the thing. drop me a mail, i can explain.
